The 2 Bears return from the woods with a bumping piano house banger ‘Angel (Touch Me)’, the lead single from their forthcoming album ‘The Night Is Young’.
Premiered by Annie Mac on Radio 1 last Friday, ‘Angel (Touch Me)’ is inspired by the Wim Wenders’ film ‘Wings Of Desire’, a romantic fantasy where angels comfort those in distress.
Raphael ‘Raf Daddy’ Rundell and Joe Goddard, have been on their toes since the release of their debut LP, the Triple J Feature Album, ‘Be Strong’ in January 2012. A radio favourite with singles featuring the ubiquitous ‘Bear Hug’, ‘Be Strong’ was one of the most widely acclaimed dance records of 2012, helping make house music a mainstream concern once more.
The duo met in the DJ booths of London, and from Brixton to Tel Aviv, via Cape Town, they’ve been sharing record decks ever since. New album ‘The Night Is Young’ is set for release on Southern Fried in September, bringing together the myriad sounds of their London home, with their collected influences of the globetrotting adventure the duo have experienced since their debut.
Meanwhile enjoy “Angel” (Touch Me) and its remixes from Ashley Beedle, Jakwob, and Mele.
